MyOpinion --- 306 days ago -

If a foreign country (ie North Korea) destroys our electric grid we would be without electric power for months. Forget being uncomfortable sweating in the dark....we would have people dying everyday. Without electricity for months we would no longer have water ... no power to pump water. Only the extreme few people who have a water well with a hand pump would have water. Do any of you even know what a hand pump looks like? Forget flushing a toilet into a public sewer line. Sewer treatment facilities require electricity to operate. Private aerobic sewer treatment require electricity to operate. Again only the extreme few have an outhouse. Months with no electricity means as people die the remaining alive have to do something with all the bodies.... dig graves with no power equipment. Protecting our electric grid is very important. The career politicians in DC don't seem to be concerned.

Your suggestions are...?

Oh my, can you get more alarmist and unrealistic? All these systems have redundancy and fallback manual control systems.

We're all gonna die!!! Head for the hills!!!

Electricity is not a necessity, it is a luxury. Home electricity and sanitation (water and sewage) have only been mass distributed for about 100 years in the US.
Digging your own well, while hard work, isn't that difficult.

dig graves with no power equipment.

My favorite part.

Thinking about my battery powered shovel.

There are a lot of survivalist groups who help you get ready for when SHTF and live off the grid. It's sort of like Hurricane Preparation on crack. I want to dig a well! How To's on YouTube.

A battery powered shovel sounds funny I agree.
Attack on our electric grid has been studied for decades by the intelligent people in science and military. More and more is learned. A recent publication I found is in Newsmax May 4, Peter Pry, Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security.
As I see it the two big questions are first who is capable of EMP attack and second are they WILLING to attack.
I believe North Korea ticks both boxes and is at the top of the list.

And your suggestions are....? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 304 days ago -

first who is capable of EMP attack

Don't think NK is capable of that yet. 

sdanielmcev --- 304 days ago -

Third. Can they deliver it. Don't think Uber has planes, yet. 

wayward1 --- 304 days ago -

first who is capable of EMP attack

I think EMP attacks are a tad over estimated. They are hard to pull off and their destructive power over electrical power isn't truly known.

Hell, if you have one bomb and one shot, why try a complicated missile launch with precise timing. Just blow the thing up in NY York city and watch the mayhem.
